Square Enix CEO Talks Nintendo Switch

Square Enix’s president, Yosuke Matsuda, has commented further on the Final Fantasy publisher’s efforts for Nintendo Switch and creating new IP, among other things. As part of the company’s latest earnings report, Matsuda said the Switch has been “rapid uptake,” which the company is of course excited about.

Matsuda added that Square Enix wants to be proactive when it comes to supporting the hybrid system. “We intend to be proactive in our development efforts given that it’s a platform that is well suited to the mid-sized titles at which we excel,” the executive said (via Gematsu).

Also in the presentation, Matsuda said Square Enix is looking at the Switch as a potential place to bring new IP and reboots of older titles.

“We base our development resource allocations on the unique attributes of each platform,” Matsuda said. “In particular, Nintendo Switch makes it easier for us to leverage our back catalog of assets and expertise, so we want to be proactive in creating new IP and rebooting past titles for that platform.”

Indeed, the Switch has been selling well since it launched in March. It has sold 7.63 million units as of the end of September. It’s been flying off the shelves at GameStop, which just today reported that Switch sales helped the retailer to a strong quarter.
